Request a ride for someone else

For times when you want to send your friends and family home–or pick them up–you can request a ride for other adults through your app.

Why it's helpful

Enjoy the convenience

Now there’s no need to rearrange your schedule, spend time in traffic, or stop what you’re doing to pick up a loved one. Save time—and your sanity.

Save the day

Grandma doesn’t have a smartphone? Mom needs a ride from the airport? Your friend got a little too happy at happy hour? Send them a reliable ride to their destination. It’s always appreciated.

How it works

Open your app

Tap to open the app, then tap Where to?

Choose the rider

Above the address box, you’ll see a scroll-down option where you can make your selection.

Sit back and relax

The person you request for will receive a text with important trip details like ETA, car type, and the driver’s contact information, so they can coordinate with the driver directly if needed.

Sign up

Download the app and set up your account so you’re ready the next time you need a ride.

Share

Invite friends to use Uber, and they’ll get $15 off their first ride.

This feature is not available in the Uber Lite app. Options vary based on your city and region.
